.SPACE: Have you Carved Yours Yet?
Radix launched the .SPACE new gTLD just over a year ago and has registered over 135,000 domain name registrations. The .SPACE registry is in the top 20 largest new TLDs and amongst the top 10 most used new domain extensions. As a new gTLD, .SPACE is very appealing to startups, artists, bloggers, entrepreneurs and DIY enthusiasts. Radix has given the .SPACE TLD a makeover providing an enhanced new look, brand image, and a brand new site at: get.space
According to Radix's Business Head & VP, Sandeep Ramchandani, "In a market flooded with new gTLDs, it is important for registries to build a brand for the TLD in the eyes of its end users and make the extension stand out. Once end users recognize and relate to the brand, the TLD will naturally see more adoption and usage." Be sure to take advantage of Radix's special promo on select new gTLDs including .SPACE.
